It works, like magic
I keep raving about my trademark combination of tonewood – spanish cedar and thermo treated arctic birch. It just works magic, no matter what style the instrument. The sound has just the right juicy combo of velvety smooth low end, mean mids to cut through in the mix and plenty, yet not too much sparkling highs.
Pick your wood from our wood library
As with all my instruments with birch top, you can pick your VSOP Deluxe top yourself from our wood library. The rarer the figuring, the more valuable the tops tend to become. Such is life – but on the other hand, things could be worse. Thank God you don’t collect master built violins… Now that is an expensive hobby!
Master built, every time
Every Ruokangas guitar is a custom made instrument by one of my master builders. The guitars we have in stock or the ones our dealers have in stock are no different. Only the person who has chosen the specs in each case changes – not the way the guitar is made. Want to know more? Check out the specifications section.


For your inspiration – here are some VSOP Deluxe guitars we’ve made. When you plan ordering your own custom guitar from me, feel free to ask me about any type of custom options!
